The first day of my ArtPrize adventure was full of painting hanging prep, including some basic supplies shopping, and rest. The evening was a fun jaunt to the artist's party where I got my swag bag and met other artists. The whole time I felt a bit fluttery with my anticipation of hanging 101 paintings on a brick wall the following two days.

downtown where we parked before going to the Artist's
party. I love the soft stillness that the early evening cool aqua sky
brought to the world in that moment.
|It was good silly fun to get "red carpet" photo in front of the |
ArtPrize wall with my swag bag, artist's badge, and freshly made pipe cleaner bug.

I never contributed, though it looked enticing. I was busy waiting in
line for my swag bag. ;-)
